Soon it will be Christmas day...

Things are getting hectic around the Averitt home. My sister and I went out today and were true power-shoppers. We still had several people on our list to buy for. We left the house at 9:30am and didn't arrive home until 9pm. It was a fun day with my sis and I'm proud to say, I'm finished with my Christmas shopping!! I wish I had the energy to tell you what happened to us at the mall, but I'm so tired and need to get some sleep. All I will say is, it was scary and please be aware of your surroundings if you are out and about, shopping over the next two days!

I'm wrapping presents like a crazy woman...trying to finish up for the Averitt Christmas, which is here at our home, tomorrow night. Tomorrow, I have to go to the grocery store to buy what I need for tomorrow evening as well as for my family to come here on Christmas day. I'm feeling a tad bit overwhelmed, but I know once I get home from the store tomorrow and start baking/cooking in the kitchen, my nerves will settle down. I tend to want things to be perfect and I'm learning that it will never be and that's okay. :) I'm sure Alex wants to slip me a prozac whenever I'm planning a party of any kind. (LOL)

I'm going to be away from blogland for the next few days, in order to celebrate Christmas with our family and friends. I hope each and every one of you, have a very Merry Christmas!!



Love to all,
Jill

Dear Jill, I am sure that there is a special kind of blood pressure rise that only occurs round Christmas! Hope you are ok after your mall trip. Have a great time with your family and look forward to hearing all about it when you return to blogland. Hugs xxxx

Merry Christmas to you and your family. Hope you guys enjoy the next few days with family and friends. The party I came to at your house DID look perfect so don't worry!!

Lovely card! Don't push yourself too hard, enjoy the holidays. I must confess I am the same way, though. Being a hostess brings out the unstable perfectionist in me BIG TIME. ;)
Hope you guys have a MARVELOUS Christmas, cannot wait to see photos and hear all about it.
*hugs*
